Alas I have no patience. I have to admit I stocked up on Italeri Confederate cavalry and infantry in anticipation of the new Strelets sets. Those will hold me over til Strelets rebels get released. Exciting times for collectors. All the best! Cappy
I'm painting up some Italeri cavalry too, from what it looks like it seems that the Strelets cavalry will mix well with the Italeri Union. I hope we get to see the horses soon. I'm really excited about all this to be honest, I wonder what Pickett's Charge set 2 will contain though, if it contains personalities like Armistead and maybe a sprue of casualties/walking wounded then it would be perfect. And I'm still hoping for a great coats set but I guess that's further into the future.

clear the way irish brigade!
I thought they were good for Danish 1864 at first glance but the jackets need to be double breasted.
I notice these Danes carry their rifles (at slope) on their left shoulder and I thought this was fairly standard and still is. Not sure why but it leaves the right hand free to pick your nose. The slope arms are a bit vertical on the models and look from the pics as if they are balancing them. As I write I bet somebody is sifting through all those surviving ACW cartes visite to prove that they have blue tunics that are not too short nor too long. Most of them got their mums to take them up or let them down before a photo but generally there must have been a lot of variation. I mention mums because with their whiskers and sideburns this batch look skewed to the middle aged gent type who could handle fancy needlework themselves.
